From Cain and Abel to Liam and Noel, there are plenty of examples of sibling rivalries getting seriously heated. And the Volkswagen T-Roc R is involved in a fight that fits with that tradition.
What’s more, due to those family ties, all three share DNA with Volkswagen’s flagship Golf R hot hatch; they use the same 296bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, four-wheel drive system and seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The $64,000 question, then, is does the T-Roc R make the best use of those mechanicals and put a bigger smile on your face than its sister cars, while remaining usable for the everyday grind?
That’s what we’ll be considering in this review, along with how the T-Roc R stacks up in areas like practicality, quality and fuel economy.
And of course, if you do decide to buy a T-Roc R, or any of its rivals, make sure you check out our New Car Buying section before you do so, because we could potentially save you thousands without the hassle of haggling.
